Romans and Romantics

This chapter investigates negotiations between the Romantic and the Classical in readings of Latin poetry. More precisely, it analyses German commentaries by Christian Gottlob Heyne, Ludolph Dissen, and Otto Gruppe on the so-called Sulpicia poems (Corpus Tibullianum 3.13-18) in the period between 1755 and 1838. The analysis not only shows how Latin texts may be the site for this kind of negotiation, but also points out how a more nuanced image of the Latin scholarship of the period might have important implications for our understanding of the legacy of Romantic classical scholarship.

Keywords:   classical scholarship, commentaries, corpus tibullianum, Otto Gruppe, Ludolph Dissen, Christian Gottlob Heyne, Sulpicia
